“Gender Equality is the Future”- Vision for Gender Equal India (Women’s Day 2019)

Gender equality, equality between men and women, entails the concept that all human beings, both men and women, are free to develop their personal abilities and make choices without the limitations set by stereotypes, rigid gender roles and prejudices. But in reality it is not so in any country all over the world.

Education I feel is one of the major tool to bring gender equality. I as a female staff of “Nambikkai Centre” has completed my post graduation and I feel slowly my people in my village have started to accept my words.

I am very confident that gender equality is the future. I have been training life skill through sport to nearly 600 children and I make it certain that gender equality reigns all throughout the sessions. Boys and girls feel comfortable to think their opposite sex as equal.
